Always at the forefront of trends, taking over the operations of his investment in EDO was Barry Chaim’s third career. Strategy, branding and execution were always his strengths. After having won awards for design and innovation, he took his experience, drive, vision and passion to EDO where the innovative menu, approach to excellence in customer service, and care for his guests and staff were rewarded by recognition by the media and the line-ups at the door. In 1999, he brought the idea of sushi to a sports arena, and was the first in the world when EDO proudly opened at the Air Canada Centre. Today he has four locations, and while EDO on Eglinton has suffered through the turmoil of LRT construction and a devastating fire, he is not deterred. Instead he looks ahead to the next trend. Developed by his son Josh, EDO was the first in Toronto to introduce the Sushi Burrito at the ACC in 2015 and Hawaiian-inspired Poke. A new direction for the restaurants is being planned and the opportunities his experiences allow him to entertain will continue to bring wonderful foods and experiences to Toronto and wherever EDO will open in the future.
